On Friday Oct. 7th, Rene Gonzalez of the Cuban 5 was released on parole and returned to Miami, where Cuban 5s unjust trial took place! The Cuban 5 are five U.S. Held political prisoners incarcerated for fighting against terrorism in the United States and Cuba.
Miami is a city full of right wing anti-revolutionary Cuban Americans who could harm Rene. He has not seen his wife in 13 years, has no family in Miami and is being forced to spend the next three years there to serve his parole, instead of going back home to Cuba.
Join The Popular Education Project to Free the Cuban 5 for our Artist benefit for Rene Gonzalez. Our goal is to raise money for his transition from prison to the outside.
Let Rene know that New York City loves him! Come out and enjoy this amazing afternoon of art, food, and film!
